Holidays are obviously meant to be devoted to relaxing and forgetting all the problems of our daily lives. However to make the most of them, a simple intellectual rest is not enough as our body is also in direneed of a holiday and needs to take its “mind” of things.
In Saint-Lucia, we have tested a superb hotel whose concept is based on a perfect combination: sportand wellness. Welcome to the BodyHoliday – LeSPORT!
Zoom on the Wellness Center and the many activities of the BodyHoliday
The BodyHoliday: the name itself is evocative of the services offered on location. It all begins with the Clubhouse where, in the morning, you will find the day’s agenda of activities on a blackboard. The list of activities include water sports, indoor and outdoor sports, breathing and relaxation… it is quite hard to mention all the activities: from fencing to archery, Taï Chi and Pilates, golf, yoga and aqua gym and including first dive, water ski, indoor sports… everything is there.
To teach you all you need to know about any activity, a team of monitors and professional coaches will be at your disposal. At the Front Desk, you can also organize your days to visit the island: trekking in Saint-Lucia’s famous rainforest, mountain biking, Turtle-watching etc.
Are you looking for a themed and customized holiday? Here, you will be surrounded by professionals responding to your desires. They will devise detox programs, slimming treatments as well as coaching sessions if you want to quit smoking etc.
The wellness centre is called “l’Oasis” and it can be seen on the heights of the BodyHoliday domain. The building, built around a swimming pool, shelters more than thirty rooms dedicated to various treatments. The masseuses will wait for you in front of your room as you will indeed be offered an hour’s worth of treatment everyday as you stay in the hotel. All you need to do is to choose which one you would prefer to try out.
In conclusion, it is always good to know that, between 2008 and 2011, the Body Holiday’s SPA hasreceived all the following rewards:
West Indies’ Top Spa by Spa Finder’s Annual Reader Choice Award
The second “Best Spa Retreat” in the world according to Conde Nast Traveller
The world’s “Favorite Overseas Spa Retreat” by the readers of Conde Nast Traveller
High quality time in a highly desirable location
As far as services are concerned, The BodyHoliday is eager to offer something unique in terms of accommodation and eating in Saint-Lucia: 153 rooms designed in a refined style – here there is a NO TV rule: everyone is cut off from the rest of the world and has to do some work on himself! Add to this the inimitable setting of the hotel, its private beach, the sea, its 3 swimming pools and its 10 acres of tropical gardens.
All in all this is a splendid environment added to high quality services and what’s more, a very caring personnel. I would like to really insist on this last point as I have rarely been that pampered in all my numerous travels and hotel visits in the Caribbean; all this in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. I have also had the chance to meet several clients who have told me that they come back each year, never disappointed and always surprised.
Quality is also the key word of the four bars and restaurants:
Ø TAO – considered by Conde Nast to be part of the Top 60 Hottest Tables in the world! Note that you should book your table 48 hours in advance and ladies should wear a little black dress.
Ø The Clubhouse – will suit your impulse (tea, BBQ, aperitif; the Clubhouse is always in tune with the moment).
Ø Le Cariblue Restaurant – located near the fabulous Cariblue beach, it is there for you to enjoy the delicious meals from breakfast to dinner whilst staying near the beach.
Ø The Deli – there you will find simplicity if you are looking for a lighter meal. The caterer will be pleased to attend to your wishes, be it a little coffee or a salad or even a sandwich…
Ø And The Piano Bar: you can order your favorite drink there or let yourself be tempted by a new cocktail before dinner.
The dream place for your wedding and honeymoon
Diane, the wedding planner will take care of your wedding and will take you through every single little detail to make your big day become unforgettable in this little corner of heaven.
Honeymoon? The hotel has more than one trick in its sleeve to turn your honeymoon night into a memory that will last a lifetime. A little helicopter tour, champagne on arrival, candlelit dinner on the beach etc. To quote the Brides, a couple who has chosen this place as their wedding destination: “We have chosen The BodyHoliday for our honeymoon as we wanted our dream to come true in an exceptional and incomparable place in the whole world.”
This just resumes everything! The BodyHoliday has all it takes to please and everything to make your stay (holidays, wedding, honeymoon) simply perfect.
